Has anybody got ANY Bluetooth Dongle to work?

Q: Has anybody got ANY Bluetooth Dongle to work?

Everybody discusses their problems, but there is very little info about a Blurtooth Dongle that works without problems in Windows 7 (32-bit in my case.)

I live in South Africa and it looks like it could be years before there are any on the shelves here, so I have to import myself, and trying to find one is a mission.

Preferred Solution: Has anybody got ANY Bluetooth Dongle to work?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Simple things first, make sure you have software that is compatible with Windows XP, might have to download an update if the product only ships with W2K

A:Bluetooth Dongle Not Detecting Bluetooth Mobile

Hi Sri, Welcome to 8 forums.
On windows type "msconfig" in search field at the start menu and open MSconfig. Go to the Services Tab and search for services related to Bluetooth. If any of them are unchecked they will not load on Windows start so make sure you have checked them.

I recently purchased these 2 items. Hoping for a headset for my phone and my pc. - Kinivo BTH220 Black Bluetooth Stereo Headphone – Supports Wireless Music Streaming and Hands-Free Ca - Mini Bluetooth USB 2.0 Micro Adapter Dongle

It worked perfect with my Andriod, but the Dongle does not seem to want connect with the headset. It seems the Dongle was not made to work with Windows 7 64bit. The bluetooth dongle will recognize the headset when I try to sync them, but will not actually let them connect for any audio. Here's a pic of the error.

I've tried reconnecting it multiple times. Been searching online for the past few hours for drivers and programs to get it to work, but no such luck. Any help will be appreciated.

hi, this is the first time im on this forum and i had a problem with my new bluetooth dongle.
well, when i bought it it camed with its own software. i herd in some forums that when a bluetooth divice is connected to a computer and u have sp2 there would be a bluetooth icon on control panel and a my bluetooth place icon in my computer. but i have sp2 but i dont have does icons. and also my mrouter does not find the bluetooth devise. so the only way i can use my bluetooth is with its own software , (which is useless to me).
does any one know how i can fix this problem?

A:bluetooth dongle

There will be no blutooth icon if Windows doesn't know you have a blutooth thingie installed. You need the drivers for your dongle. Try ones from the manufacturer's website instead of the outdated ones you have on the CD.

I have recently been given a blue-tooth dongle by a friend, but he didn't give me no driver disk. He said it wasn't needed as its plug an play.

I plugged the device into my comp an it was detected by windows.
But then it said it couldn't be installed as it didn't have no drivers in windows.
So i do really need a driver disk.
I have looked on the web an cant find any thing.
Also i don't even know the make of the device. All i have is Blue-tooth V.1.2 Class 2 USB dongle.
When windows detects the device it is named as Siw.

I have checked the
an done a google search but I'm not getting much luck.

Does any body know where i can get the drivers for this device??
All help would be appreciated.
Many thanks

I bought a Creative D-100 wireless speaker about a year ago. It connects via Bluetooth and worked fine (at first) with my Desktop PC, using a Medialink USB dongle. However, after a few months, it no longer connects to the speaker. When I open Bluetooth Control, I see the Creative D-100, but when I click on "Connect," it acts as if it wants to connect, but after a second or two, tells me I am disconnected. I re-paired the speaker, but still, no connection.

A friend, on a recommendation from me, bought a D-100, but was unable to connect from the start. I also bought one as a gift that can't connect to the recipient's PC. All three USB dongles were from a different manufacturer. However, in each case, Windows 7 was the OS.

The speaker connects effortlessly to my Google tablet with built-in Bluetooth. My diagnostic skills are exhausted. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Look for some Bluetooth install software for your dongle and computer. You computer must have a setup and pairing program and a profile for your phone to computer connection.

Most dongles will come with a CD to install such.

Hi all, first time asking for help on this forum, hope someone can help.

Well, I bought an 2.0 usb bluetooth dongle for my pc. When I plug it in, it does nothing, no bing-bong device sound, no uninstalled device in device manager, nothing.

Pc mobo is kinda old, asus p4p800se, but it has usb 2.0, I have had no other problems with any other device. I know the dongle works because I took it back to the shop and they tested it in front of me on a xp pro machine. I run xp home sp3.

I have tried pretty much everything googling has to offer (driver updates, bt stacks ect), and this is my last resort.

If anyone out there can help, it would be much appreciated, THX

Any ideas??


A:Bluetooth Dongle Problems

I wouldn't be surprised if you have the same one that I got today.
The description of your device, the green led, your problem, they're all very familliar.
I have this one:

I don't know where you got yours, but it should come with drivers. Like you I expected that hardware manager would yell something, which it didn't. It turns out that you really have to install the drivers, otherwise it won't work, trust me on that.

In my case it meant BlueSoleil drivers that came with the product on a mini cdrom, but these drivers suck. Then you have the other issue that some of these dongles have a mac address of 11:11:11:11:11:11, because some suppliers wanted to save money by not getting a proper mac address. The BlueSoleil drivers will whine about that at one point, yell at you that you have illegal drivers and switch the software in evaluation mode (you gotta "love" those Chinese LOL). There are dozens of users complaining about this and for a good reason of course. Btw, I got one of those 11:11... mac addresses, bummer...

I followed the advice of some person and got these Widcomm bluetooth drivers:

After that, everything solved and much better software too, also more stable.
As for the 11:11:... it's very unlikely to run in a problem with that in the future, unless you connect to someone else with the same mac address, again... very unlikely (I spare you the details).

Again, you might have a different dongle, but that's how I solved it.

Hi guys,

I'm trying to figure out the best way to transfer all audio wirelessly (as if there was a cable connected to line out) and hook up a wireless mouse.

Seems like the cheapest way to do both things is through bluetooth. Price aside, I'm afraid streaming all audio from my computer via wifi would slow down my internet connection.

Problem is my computer (VAIO vpceb1m1e) doesn't have bluetooth. It has 4 USB ports. If possible I would like to use only one USB dongle (nano) for both things.

Is it even possible to use a same Bluetooth USB dongle for audio streaming and mouse control, both working fine?

Any system you recommend?

i want to get a bluetooth dongle but dont know much about them. what is the differance between class1 & class2? also i have seen V1.1 & V2.0 is it similar to usb 2.0? many thanks gary

A:Solved: bluetooth dongle

Bluetooth (BT) classes:
Class 1, has a range of about 300 ft, it is the highest power (~100mw)
(but since it uses about 40 times more power than Class 2, it is not too often used)
Class 2, has a range of about 30 ft, it is the most commonly used (~2.5mw)
Class 3, has a range of about 3 ft, it is the lowest power (~1mw).
(The power used by Class 1 is only about 40% less than Class 2, and perhaps is not really worth the power savings in lieu of the much shorter range.)

As for the version numbers, you need to find out if they are talking about either the USB interface for the dongle, or the BT version.

Dongles referring to the USB interface speed USB v1.x is 12MBps (Millions of bits per second). Since BT data rate is somewhat limited to under 1Mbps, the older, and slower v1.1 USB speed of 12Mbps is much more than adequate.

There is a new BT version just now being introduced, it is usually called BT v1.2, or in some places v2 (thus the confusion with the USB version numbers). This is about 3 times faster than the common BT v1 (there is a v1.0 - seldom used, and v1.1, both are the same speed, just some connection improvements)
The new BT v1.2 uses less power than needed for the same power Class in BT v1.1

Hi there I have a Panda dongle purchased on Amazon As per some comments I found I allowed Windows to install the driver for it as people were stating that the manufacturer was instructing against using the drivers included with the dongle Windows stated that the driver was installed successfully I now have a BT icon in the toolbar and there's no errors being reported in the device manager The issue I have is that when I go to quot Devices and Printers quot or quot Bluetooth Personal Area Network Devices quot the location bar shows scanning veeeeeeeerrrrrryyy slowly to then just stays blank It looks like the process never ends I never see my BT headphones that I've turned on for the discovery process I'm sure that the dongle is operable because in my Debian install on the same machine I'm able to connect to my BT devices without issue It just seems to be an issue in my Win install Could someone help me troubleshoot this issue I'd love to be able to use my BT headphones Thanks for your time

My bluetooth dongle isn't working in Windows 7, it worked perfectly fine in vista, in which it worked fine. I can't figure out how to get it working with a driver, I never had a install cd or anything vista and xp ran it fine.
If someone can direct me to find a driver for this it would help greatly. I've tried to install the generic bluetooth driver and that didn't work either.

Please help!


A:Bluetooth Dongle not working in Windows 7

what kind of bluetooth dongle is it?

My girlfriend has a no-name bluetooth usb dongle (she bought it some time ago since her laptop came without the bluetooth integrated and she needs it to access stuff on her cellphone). It worked perfectly on her Windows 7 machine until recently. Now, by looking into the Device manager this is what we see:
And now when she connects the dongle to the USB port it does't work. I've tested it: I connected the dongle to my old XP machine and there it worked fine - and instantly. So the thing itself is OK.

I tried uninstalling the devices from her computer but when they reinstall it says that the driver installation was unsuccessful. I also tried seraching for the driver by the Hardware ID but found nothing that would work.

Do you guys have any idea how to fix this?

Thank you!

So I just got a razr in the mail today and I also have a USB bluetooth dongle, now, the windos bluetooth drivers detect the phone okay, and want to use it as a modom, I can also transfer files back and forth between the phone. When I install the software with the phone called "Mobile Phone Tools" it will connect to the phone okay via usb, but when I unhook the usb cord and try to connect the phone over bluetooth it can't find it. I remember back when I had a sony ericsson t616 phone with bluetooth I had the same kind of problem, but i had to tell the software to connect over usb, even if it was a bluetooth connection, and that made it work. I'm not sure if this can somehow be done with the razr, any ideas?

Which exe or msi file do I double click on to install proper driver for Windows Xp so my Bluetooth Dongle device will be recognzied on my p.c. and will work?

Do I install the software before I plugin the Bluetooth Dongle to usb port to my p.c. or plugin usb dongle, then install the software ?

Try this in order. Make sure that the bluetooth is turned off, prepare your bluetooth menu for the new device then turn on the headphones. Hold the power button until you get the blue light. After doing that start the device discovery. Now pair the headphone. Restart the device and see if it works.

A:Bluetooth dongle not recognised - maybe driver problem?

Hi Ricardo, Welcome to Vista Forums. I will try to help you fix your problem with your Bluetooth adapter. Here are some things to try:

1) Check for the device in Device Manager: Click Start, type Device into the search box, click Device Manager in the list of results, Click the plus next to Bluetooth Radios (If present) and see if the dongle shows up without a Yellow Warning sign next to it. If it doesn't show up, or has a warning sign next to it, let me know. If it does read on.

2) Reinstall the Device Driver and Software: Go to Control Panel, Programs, Programs and Features, select the Bluetooth software from the list and uninstall it. Then insert the disc that came with your dongle and reinstall the software and drivers. If this works, Please tell me, otherwise read on.

3) If your are here and the problem is still not solved, let me know. I am searching for a driver on the internet that will download and saves normally, and that is virus free. I will let you know if I find one.

i am wondering if anyone on here knows of anything i can try to resolve this?

A:Code 38 with Asus USB-BT400 Bluetooth Dongle

Did you have a BT device before or is there one included (built-in) in your laptop? The code indicates there is a BT driver already in memory. The normal procedure is to remove the old driver then reboot before installing a new device driver, However; Windows will install a generic BT driver when the device is first plugged in so a new driver shouldn't be needed. Post an image of your Hardware Manager with the BT device plugged in and Bluetooth Radios expanded.

It looks like your adapter probably uses the toshiba bluetooth stack.
Try the trial download and see if it activates with your adapter.
If not,you would either have to buy the software or get another adapter.
Probably cheaper to get another adapter on ebay.
If you get another adapter,get one that is EDR 2.1.

Have you tried using the Vista driver from Belkin?
Make sure the device is not plugged in attempt to install the driver and let us know what happens
Ps if it does not install normally you can also right click on it select properties, compatibility and select install in compatability mode for Vista

I hope this helps

Try the drivers from Support - they show as 32bit though, no idea if they will work for you.

Hello . Just a quick question: is it possible to use a wireless Xbox controller adapter as a universal Bluetooth dongle on my PC? I doubt that it will work, but its worth to ask.

Purchased a brand new Asus USB-BT211 bluetooth dongle with the express goal of connecting a wiimote to my new computer. the machine runs Windows 7 x64, the drivers for the dongle install without a problem, and the bluetooth searching mode on the "add a device" screen appears to be running without a hitch.

when i place the wiimote into sync mode (holding down the red button), it never appears to be visible to the computer, and doesn't show up on the add a device screen. When I attempt this procedure with either of my other two laptop computers, (running Windxows Vista x86) using the same dongle, the wiimote syncs without a problem and can be used with other utilities such as glovePIE and JoyToKey and Dolphin.

So, tell me, Why is it that Windows 7 refuses to see the wiimote when i try to make the connection?

Hello I am having a repeat issue with a MediaLink Bluetooth adapter recently purchased I purchased one as a gift for another and they had this same issue but I was able to get it resolved for them and cannot remember how I did it The problem was when plugging the dongle XP bluetooth dongle. USB auto Windows not detect device will or / 7 into any of multiple ports windows doesn t even flinch Device doesn t light up simply nothing happens Completely undetected I have tried it on an HP Elite desktop with Windows Ultimate and a Dell Vostro Laptop with Windows 7 or XP will not auto detect USB bluetooth device / dongle. XP on it I remember one part of the solution was to not use the included CD drivers from the company or the ones available from their site as per their own instructions it was suggested I use Broadcom s direct driver download utility which I did But this is useless if the device is undetectable to begin with it s as good as dead to the computer I also disabled my anti-virus momentarily wondering if Windows 7 or XP will not auto detect USB bluetooth device / dongle. it could be the culprit as it usually is I have searched around and found no solution any ideas nbsp

Hello, I have just recently gotten a GHS2 4.0 Bluetooth Adapter (link to Amazon page GHS2 Bluetooth 4.0 USB Network Adapter Dongle for Windows / Linux / Mac - Plug and Play Dongle Class 2 Transmitter - 32/64 Bit: Computers & Accessories)
Reviews looked good, figured it would be nice to be able to connect headphones without the cables. Got it today...

Not once has it worked. It shows up when I search for a device with my phone, and it can see both my phone, and my headphones. However, upon attempting to connect, I get this
Any help would be appreciated

iogear 4.0 in UPS land somewhere. Have samsung shape speakers I hope to connect to. I also have the matching hub. Tells me we need a smart device. The android we have may be the one we can usel I was told (whoops right there) that these speakers should also connect through our pc without the dongle. The app will not download because the pc is not compatible. I kinda figured that. Any suggestions? I'm beginning to feel really tech oblivious! Would like hubby to be happy.

I have a D-Link DWM - 156 dongle which worked OK on my old XP laptop but won't work on my new Windows 8 64bit laptop. I have tried to download new drivers but am asked to subscribe to driver download software.

A:Dongle Won't Work

There is no support for this dongle in Windows 7 or 8. You can try the firmware or contact D-Link to see if they have a driver for Windows 8. D-Link UK | DWM-156 3.75G HSUPA USB Adapter

I have a meteor dongle that works on a toshiba laptop running windows 7 ultimate and on a HP desktop running windows 7 ultimate, I`m trying to use it on a HP laptop running windows 7 ultimate but it won`t work.
The Hp laptop installs the software that comes built on the dongle, it shows up on the windows explorer screen but when i go to the dongle interface nothing happens it tells me there is no sim card configured and it doesn`t show up on device manager either.
Since the 2 laptops and desktop are running the same OS and all 3 are updated why will it work on 2 and not the other?

I just purcahsed a blue solei usb dongle so that I didn't have to use the faulty cables anymore for my phone, but I can't anything working.

I installed everything with the usb dongle (had to get drivers off google) but the blue solei program seems to be working.

Is there any common reasons for MPT not detecting my phone or something else I should be doing to get them connected before MPT?
